The need for hospice care begins when the focus of care changes from treating the disease to treating the patient’s symptoms and providing him or her comfort. Seeking hospice care early on is often beneficial to both patients and their family members, as it allows us to ease and comfort the family through a difficult and unknown time, providing higher quality of life and more time with loved ones.
Hospice is a fully covered Medicare benefit so the family bears no financial responsibility for the service. Hospice service coverage includes hospice service and care, medications, medical supplies and equipment. Choosing hospice care can prevent unnecessary financial burdens to the family that can be accrued when hospice care is not elected.
